I want to believe

November 26, 2013

I suspect there will be considerable criticism of Tony Edwards’s forthcoming book, The Good News about Booze. Those who want a preview can read the author’s online articles flogging alcohol’s health benefits and exceptional dietary qualities. Given my taste for wine, I’d like to believe that’s the end of the story. But my inner skeptic cautions me that the terroir is more complex than one reading of it.

I’m even more skeptical of the University of Buffalo study interpreted as marital advice that different drinking habits leads to divorce. There’s just too many likely common causes.
